      Tell me about your addiction/bad habit

      Just as the title says, I'll start;

      Smoking (cigarettes not weed) and cracking my fingers

      What's a sigaret.

      I have a bad habit of not doing dishes right away, letting them build up and become a chore. In general, I'm bad at just doing various things like that right away. In other words, I like to procrastinate. But I don't like that I procrastinate. I have trouble building the motivation needed to not procrastinate.

      I pick at my fingernails (with my other fingernails) when I am bored or stressed. Can't help it, been doing it since I was a kid.

      I managed to break my habits of burping and cracking my knuckles as a kid, I even taught myself to sit up straight, but I still pick at my nails.

      So annoying.

      I meant cigarette, just spelled it wrong

      What is procrastinate?

      Doing dishes straight away is a thing I also don't do but I think it's just more efficient to let it pile up for a week and than do it all at once

      All bad habits seem quite normal, mayby there is someone out there with a really weird habit?

      I know, I just thought your spelling was funny.

      And doing dishes once a week?! Guess you don't cook much.

      I have a bad habit of clinging to characters when things go wrong in my life too. It has been wrong for some time now. But despite the clinging I know I love them but it seems way too hard to get the love so it's for me.

      Procrastinate means you'll keep putting things off that you're supposed or wanted to do.

      You want a really weird habit? The other habits I have are caused by my mental disorder so they're not exactly me. Every other day I'll find a new way to kill myself and I get freaked out too. And I double/triple check things a lot of times. I start doubting what I type, worried they'll contain sexual words. Now I'm worried that I might type words that'll make no sense at all.

      I find it tiring if I sleep TOO much every day.

      i was talking about the characters within myself. for example lets say i get injured and i have to go months without working out. my mind will automatically develop a different role character and start clinging to it. there is nothing wrong with it but the clinging part is beginning to drive me crazy.

      or lets say i'm rich and i'm attached to playing my role as a rich man. i enjoy living the rich life and being able to afford all the expensive things. then one day i lose everything. of course i become severely depressed but then i will start cling to something else. i may start clinging to religion. then i'll start thinking myself as a religious person. all to avoid this void.

      something like that. more like clinging to my roles in life and personality. i even cling to my identity on the internet at times or my personality when i'm around people. i have no problem being this or that but this attachment is more and more becoming hell. like i'm putting so much energy into creating myself.

      I think I'm somewhere similar to you. The only difference is I don't focus on roles or personality. I care how I am functioning internally more than what I'm portraying externally. So my thoughts are changing at an alarming speed everyday.

      I don't consider joint cracking to be a bad habit. It feels good and isn't bad for you.

      Drinking and smoking now. It's hard to say though what will develop into a habit.

      Agreed. I have this awesome cracking thing IN MY CHEST. If I've been sitting slightly slouched, or bent or lying down, once I stand up my chest will feel a bit tight. All I have to do is lean back a bit and *pop*, the area between my two sets of rips cracks. It's the nicest feeling, and is a great conversation starter

      I do have quite a few OCD tendencies, which until my old psychology teacher pointed out, I never noticed were strange:

      I'm silently obsessed with symmetry. That is, usually without noticing, both sides of my body need to feel equal. This includes, for example, scratching my left arm and then immediately needing to scratch the right in the same place. However, both sides cannot have the same number, yet both must be an odd number. So, if I scratch my left arm once, I must scratch my right arm three times, or scratch it once and then scratch my left arm another two times. This also applies to tensing, stretching, touching (even touching fingers together), but some things don't bother me. For example, I'm at my desk, sitting on my right leg on my computer chair, yet I have no desire to switch and sit on my left leg.

      I have other things like this, but I won't bore you with the details.

      I have the same (except with even numbers) and a lot of others too, which were terrible when I was a child. Not many are bad enough anymore to interfere with my life much. For example, if taking eggs from an egg carton, I'll rearrange the ones left so they're symmetrical or at least in a cool pattern.
